European Economics

Add to favourites

In the minor in European Economics you will gain a basic understanding of economics from a broader humanities perspective, and with a special application on European integration, providing you with a framework for understanding and analysing contemporary Europe.

In this minor you will familiarise yourself with the basic concepts and core principles of economic analysis, but also extend and criticise these from a humanities perspective, and apply these to questions relating to the European economy and economic integration within the European Union. Upon completion of the minor in European Economics you will be able to independently assess the broader economic benefits and economic costs of European integration.

This minor is offered by the Faculty of Humanities. The faculty’s minors consist of 30 ECTS credits and earn you a second qualification that will be listed on the transcript accompanying your degree certificate.
